If you are doing this you might want to stop.  Some are using an anti-itch lotion like Calamine lotion as a makeup primer because of its drying properties.   While it’s designed to be used as a spot treatment to dry things like bug bites and block itching, skin professionals say using it on the face everyday can damage the skin barrier overtime.    Ongoing usage can lead to chronic inflamed skin and pre-mature aging.
